Rooted in political science and law, the programme enables the student to work in both public and private organisations that engage in areas of conflict and which for this reason need to assess the dynamics of the conflict, need to identify possible venues of action, and which must be cognizant of repercussions in the international domain.
The student will in particular gain these competences:
- Analytical skills rooted in political science and international law with a special emphasis on ethical issues;
The ability to develop independent and original assessments of conflicts, policy options, and international repercussions;
- The ability to develop cross-disciplinary team work to generate broader and ongoing conflict assessments;
- The profile that is indispensable to organisations involved in conflict assessment, management, and resolution;
The skill required to occupy central and important positions in these organizations and thus to help prioritise, organise and sustain the organisation’s analytical capacity.
